Carmine Rodi Falanga


I have experience as a journalist, social worker, educator, project coordinator, hostel manager, blogger, author and stand-up comedian. I am a psychotherapist in training (3rd year).

All the work I do revolves around stories. How we craft, share and tell stories to entertain, inspire and educate. And how stories shape the world in which we live.

My main focuses are: global education, science, critical story/media analysis, digital & online education, game-based learning, comedy & humor.

Carmine Rodi Falanga has 3 references for past work as a trainer.

Current occupation

Freelance Trainer, Consultant, Facilitator, Author, Comedian.

Work experience

my main occupation over the last 19 years has been to design, run and assist projects related to youth work and training, both at a local and international level.

Over the past years I have regularly been involved in organising and running training events, international seminars, courses, meetings - as facilitator or trainer.
My biggest areas of interest are (at the moment):

- personal development,
- storytelling,
- comedy & humor,
- game-based learning,
- digital & online education,
- nature-based methods and rites of passage,
- intercultural learning,
- media & communication,
- democracy and human rights,
- conflict management.

I have been working with a wide range of organisations, from very small, grassroots level NGOs or informal groups, up to well established international organisations, or public bodies such as National Agencies for Youth or local government agencies.

Educational pathway

Formal background:
I hold a 5 years master degree in Economics and Business Management.

Previously I have worked for 6 years as a journalist in Italy, during my university years.
Soon after my degree I started working on designing and running activities related to education and training.

After completing my SALTO-Youth "Training for Trainers" (edition 2004/05) I have been developing my training skills with a number of learning experiences.

I will mention the Training for Guides on "Rites of Passage and Vision Fast" run by the School of Lost Borders in California (USA) (2014), and the 4-years psychotherapy training I am currently taking (2018-), using the "Pesso-Boyden" approach in Prague (CZ).
